Here's a little information about Noise Pop from the festival website:
The Noise Pop Festival returns Tuesday, February 23rd through Monday, March 1st, 2010 showcasing the best local music alongside national and international indie rock favorites. For our 18th anniversary, Noise Pop 2010 will honor what's made it the best-loved celebration of indie music and culture since its humble birth in 1993. Since then the festival has grown into a widely respected brand. Noise Pop prides itself on bringing exposure to emerging artists, many of whom have gone on to widespread acclaim, including the White Stripes, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins, Bright Eyes, The Donnas, Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco), Silversun Pickups, Wolfmother, the Dodos and many, many more. The festival has also featured underground music legends such as Bob Mould, X, Frank Black (of the Pixies), Sleater Kinney, and Television. Noise Pop also includes the ever popular Noise Pop Film Festival, Pop 'N Shop, gallery art shows and much more.
